Spray foam - code issues?


Anyone aware of any code issues with using spray foam in the walls with reference to both house and low voltage wiring & plumbing as well? I thought I had read somewhere about possible heat issues with the house wiring and interference with the low voltage wiring. Don't know about plumbing issues.

If there are any known issues with it - can I run the wiring across the (truss) joists and then down the wall in conduit?

Thanks,
Rick

The wires are fine to spray around. The only thing is the manufacturer of the recessed lights want you to wrap them in fiberglass batts and then spray up to the batts or box them in. That is all I was told
